Your first award is earnt after 30 hours, then new awards are achieved every 30/35 hours. Between each new award the children need to have 10 hours of ‘something new’, the holiday activity sheets are a great way of earning these extra hours, so keep an eye out for these. They are usually listed on this page. For a guide to the award system click here

Please remember, when you first attend a new club, highlight it in your passport, as you need 10 hours of ‘something new’ in order to qualify for the next award

Don’t forget to keep a running total on each page of your passport to show how many hours you have built up.

If you have any questions about the Children’s University then just pop in and ask to speak to Mr Pryke.

The Hustings for our new Children’s University Ambassadors took place on Friday 10th November 2017.   7 Year Five children put themselves forward and presented a speech in the assembly.  They were all fantastic and should be very proud. All passport holders voted on who they would like to represent them and the new ambassadors are now officially Kaelyn and Isabelle! Well done girls.
